Hi everyone. I was just curious if this dime was a misaligned die or a broadstrike.

Just a tad but within mint specifications. These are very common and you can often find rolls of these.

If you can hugeeyes reeding all the way around the outer edge, then the "Collar Die" was in place...
Meaning that this cannot be a broad–strike.
